    My cavaliers like to nibble grass, but I only allow it in my own back yard. Many people in my area put fertilizer and pesticides on their lawns, and I don't want to risk their health.

    im glad to hear its not only ruby doing this as i know eating grass can be a sign of needing to be sick as it helps them do this but shes very healthy and it just worried me a bit i do stop her but shes not daft she runs through it so she can grab a bit little devil i have no worrys her doing it while we are out shes fully vaccinated and we take her in our local woods mainly so i dont think shes in any harm just puzzled me a bit as she heads straight for it

    Ours do this all the time and it's only started in the last few months... I find it really strange as I thought it meant they had a stomach problem but the vet said they are fine...

    We have just got back from our holiday and a neighbour chased us on our walk with the dogs because while we were away dog haters in the area had put dog poison all around the places where people are allowed to let their dogs off the lead. It's awful and apparently it's happened before and the only way this gets dscovered is because a poor owner has lost his dog through the poison... This time it's 1 dog but the last time 5 dogs were killed. This is a complete shock and we are now trying to find out what the authorities do about this situation!

    I have no idea what the poison is, and how these evil people can do this. We have to keep the dogs off the grass until further notice. So like Cathy says - it can be VERY bad for their health if they eat the grass :-(

    Hi
    When i take my three out on the Wirral Way they transform themselves to three little white sheep that trot alongside me on our walk all munching grass as we merrily go along

    I swear Dottie is part Billy Goat, as she enjoys grazing occasionally in our backyard. I don't allow her to go near anyones lawns on our walks so munching away from home is not permitted. #1, People don't like strange dogs on their grass, and #2, Who knows what people have treated their grass with...it could be toxic.

    Millie is always chompin on any bit of grass in our garden, but I dont let her when we're out for walks. They have treated a section of one of our local parks for rats and have signs up warning people that there has been poison laid - so Im always cautious when were out.
